The CRM-Fields-PIMS Prize is a Canadian award in the mathematical sciences. It is given annually by three Canadian mathematics institutes: the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques (CRM), the Fields Institute, and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS).

The prize was established in 1994 by the CRM and the Fields Institute as the CRM-Fields Prize. The prize took its current name when PIMS became a partner in 2005.

The prize carries a monetary award of $10,000, funded jointly by the three institutes. The prize winners have often gone on to win other prizes. The inaugural prize winner was H.S.M. Coxeter. Other prominent prize winners include Stephen Cook and William Thomas Tutte. The prize is usually given to individuals with the exception of 2003 when it was given jointly to John McKay and Edwin Perkins.
